I think the main problem for me is fatigue. Today was my first day with two exams - Maths and Geography and honestly I was so exhausted coming home! Also my hand literally starts cramping after I write for a while so I keep having to take breaks in the exam to try and get rid of the pain which isn't great.

At least its half term next week so I can have a bit of a relax - I only have two more exams and by thursday at 11am I'll be able to chill a bit!

Doing the actual exam is okay, but after, I realise how many silly mistakes I made and just regret those mistakes, but then get over it the next day. I'm not feeling very stressed - just doing a little bit of revision the days before the exams - an hour or two.

In the actual exams I feel like time just flies by so quickly. You get in there and you’re out just as fast.

I’m really tired because of all the writing but I don’t feel the stress yet because in my head these just feel like mocks. No idea if that’s a good or a bad mindset aha.

Good luck everyone!!

aha yeah you aren't alone, everyone at my school is so chilled and they are all saying they felt way more stressed for the mocks - if anything that's positive as it means you won't make as many mistakes due to fear

I think you do but if you aren't planning on doing it at university or a subject related, i dont think they care too much. At the end of the day they care mostly about your predicted A level grades and your ucas application itself e.g. personal statement
